after much begging, bartering, pleading, and outright threatening, our online registration is finally up. derby 2012 starts in less than a week! i was down in Delaware this weekend and picked up a new 7′ rod to replace the one that got stepped on near the end of summer. a 7-footer might be a little short for fishing the derby, but i don’t do the bait and wait thing: i like to plug and travel light and stay mobile. plus some of the places i like to fish aren’t exactly legal, so i like to keep my gear low profile. shirts and posters are getting printed up this week, hope to see you all Sunday the 14th.
